Sunday School-Cinnamon Pancakes

Happy Sunday lovelies!

How was your week?  Were you up to anything exciting?

After a long week I always love a good Sunday brunch, these pancakes would be a wonderful addition to any brunch!

The are sweet and delicious and fluffy (thanks to some whipped egg whites).

They are a pretty extravagent breakfast that are super easy to make, which is always great!

recipe adapted from Erin Cooks

Cinnamon Swirl

1/2 cup sugar

2 tablespoons all-purpose flour

1 1/2 tablespoons cinnamon

1/4 tsp. salt

4 tablespoons butter (at room temperature)

In a small bowl, mix together all ingredients.  Using a fork mash everything together until it smooths out, at first it doesn’t seem possible but then it all comes together.  Set to the side

Pancakes

2 cups flour

1 teaspoon baking powder

1/2 teaspoon salt

1 tablespoon sugar

4 eggs, separated

1 cup milk

1 cup orange juice

4 tablespoons butter

In a medium bowl mix together the flour, baking powder, salt and sugar.

In a small bowl, mix the egg yolks, milk, orange juice and butter.

Add the liquid to the dry ingredients and whisk together.

In a separate bowl, whisk the eggs until they have formed stiff peaks.  The goal is for the whites to remain smooth and to not get “chunky” looking.

Add the egg whites to the rest of the batter and carefully fold in.  Do this by cutting through the middle of the whites and folding into the rest of the batter.  It will get nice and thick.

Grease a frying pan or a griddle and heat oven medium-high heat.  Add a swirl of the cinnamon filling and cook until the bubbles on top are popped or the edges turn golden brown.

Flip the pancakes and cook for another 2-3 minutes.  Remove from the pan and store in a warm place.

Cream Cheese Glaze

3 oz cream cheese

4 tablespoons butter

1 1/2 cups powdered sugar

3 tablespoons milk

In a small bowl add the cream cheese and butter, mix together using a mixer.  Slowly add the powdered sugar and milk until the glaze reaches your desired consistency.

Spoon on top of the pancakes and enjoy!

Happy Sunday!

Love,

Keely
